Mike Tyson’s Boxing Hall of Fame Induction Speech

As a kid, Mike Tyson was my boxing hero.  I was familiar with boxing and it’s legends, but I couldn’t identify with them like I could with Mike.  He was young, ferocious and modest…did he have his downfalls, certainly.  He was, however the first Hip-Hop champ for the Hip-Hop generation and for that he’ll always be special for Generations X & Y.

This past weekend, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame for his contribution and influence to the sport of boxing.  We all know Mike’s an emotional person and nothing exemplifies that than his acceptance speech.  Congrats, Mike…well deserved.
